Has it been four years already? You bet, and this year’s Olympic Games are back bigger and better than ever before. And if you didn’t make the cut this year either, you can still enjoy all the action of the super humans of the world competing against one another – both as united teams and as strong individuals, from 5th till 21st August, followed by the Paralympics from 7th to 18th September.
This year’s clash of titans takes place in the colourful city of Rio De Janeiro in sunny Brazil. So we highly recommend pairing your game nights with Brazilian steaks, sugar cane drinks and confetti to get you and your mates into the right spirit. And here are some of our top picks for venues where you can enjoy the opening and closing ceremonies and competitions throughout the Olympics.
Reform Social & Grill, The Lakes
A strong contender this summer when it comes to airing all of the best sports, Reform Social & Grill have gained hugely in popularity thanks to their large, fully air-conditioned tent set up on the lawn in front of the pub. Join them this August to catch the Olympic games played on the big screen, along with a range of games such as Beer Pong tournaments to maintain a sporting spirit. Reform will also have special food and drinks promotions available to enjoy during the games. For more information and to book, call 04 454 2638.
Nezesaussi Grill, Manzil, Downtown
One of Dubai’s favourite sports hub, Nezesaussi Grill, will be offering Deals of the Day to ensure each sports event during the Olympic games has something new and exciting for guests to look forward to. With 19 giant television screens to pick from, you will witness the world’s leading athletes fight it out for this year’s coveted medals. What CitiSpi love about this place is that its relaxed atmosphere combined with affordable food offers make it a top spot for catching all the sports action! To book, call 04 428 5888.
The Hub, Sofitel JBR
For the Marina and JBR residents, there’s a great place to follow the games down at cosy pub ‘The Hub’ at Sofitel in JBR. The games will be shown across large TV screens and guests will be invited to indulge in Brazilian brews and South American mixed beverages. There will also be an Olympic Rings promotion with colour themed food and drink combos in honour of the Olympics. What do we love so much about this little haunt? It’s smoke-free! To book a table, call 04 448 4848.
Perry & Blackwelder’s, Souk Madinat
If you like to pair your sports action with a decadent meat feast, then Perry & Blackwelder’s at Souk Madinat Jumeirah is your top choice this summer. They will air all of the Olympic games throughout the season during their normal opening times. We do love a good excuse for a night out in Souk Madinat so you’ll be sure to find members of the CitiSpi team in front of the TV screens here ever so often in August! To book, call 0 4 366 6197.
Barasti, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi
It’s your bar by the beach, the one and only: Barasti, who will of course be getting their fair share of the action this Olympic season. The giant air-conditioned tent that was raised for the recent Euro 2016 yet stands and will play host to fans of the Olympic games in August. The tent houses one giant TV screen while another screen is situated towards the beach, and it’s big enough not to be missed, whether or not you manage to score a front row seat or back row standing position. For information and bookings call 04 318 1313.
